Work with an expert team to launch your product.

Our process takes you from a napkin sketch to a fully developed mobile app or web app in 3 steps. Then you can continue building on your success.

Step 1 The SolutionLab.

Similar to building a custom home, there are many decisions that go into your custom software. The SolutionLab is like hiring an architect to design your new custom home before you have a contractor pour cement. A thorough blueprint keeps your team of designers and developers on the same page.

How do you know where to begin?

The problem with custom software is that you'll explain the same app idea to a dozen different firms, then hear quotes ranging from $50,000 to $500,000. How do you know you're making the right decision? This is why we begin by understanding exactly what you want to accomplish. Then we identify the simplest way to solve your problem without leaving anything out.

Follow the ‘lean startup’ methodology.

Imagine you’re trying to solve the problem of transportation, getting from Point A to Point B. Unless you’re an eccentric billionaire, it would be cost-prohibitive to immediately build a car company from scratch. Your customers might not even need – or want – a car. This is why we start with a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to get paying customers in the door.

SolutionLab output:

The SolutionLab leaves you with a blueprint describing the exact features and functions of your software project - both in writing and in visual form. This includes an exploration of your app or website's business model, risks to consider before you jump in, and a roadmap for the investment of time and money required to bring it to fruition.

Step 2 Graphic design & prototyping.

Secure buy-in from future users and stakeholders with an interactive prototype to make sure you’re building the right thing.

Design & prototyping output:

You’ll have a full simulation of your digital product to show exactly how each screen looks, feels, and functions. All of your app’s or website's individual screens become a usable prototype. Install it on your phone or send a link, then get fundraising from investors, validation from future users, and feedback from stakeholders. With this buy-in, you can jump into development with full confidence.

Step 3 Development.

This is where we write code. We use the Agile methodology to break projects into digestible Sprints. This allows for regular testing of key features as well as regular progress updates. Every week, you can see what’s been done and know what’s coming next.

Development output:

Your working, installable app or website is ready to accept users, perform its intended function, and generate revenue. We quote each feature individually, which means you know what it will cost to add those nice-to-have features in future iterations. This also ensures your first version includes all of the core functionality without surpassing the budget.

Step 4 Maintenance & iteration.

Based on analytics and feedback gathered from your product’s users, our focus will be on boosting customer satisfaction and engagement. User feedback drives prioritization as we manage the backlog of new features and enhancements.

Maintenance & iteration output:

Regular implementation of enhancements makes your app or website more polished and feature-rich over time. Adding functionality keeps your users engaged and your business humming along because your product gets more valuable each and every day.

Let's build together.
